We cannot get the Café Royal for May 1st, & McNab thinks we ought to have a meeting of Dinner Committee to decide on some other place - Next Friday at 6.30 will suit McLean [sic], so please come if you can. I have written to the other [p. 2] men - McNab only had a definite reply from the Café Royal y'day -
Underdown has consented to take the chair -
